5.14.3 approaches
Message ID:
Hello all,

Ricardo has persuaded me to do some work on getting 5.14.3 out of the
door, so I've made a start on maint-5.14, taking his work and sorting
out some outstanding details.

There are a few approved changes in cherrymaint which haven't been
included yet; I've created tracking RT tickets for them:

#114840  maint-5.14: 7402016 Don't leak memory when accessing named captures that didn't match
#114842  maint-5.14: f0e9f18 Restore the package name to overload errors; fix crash
#114844  maint-5.14: be88a5c $tainted ~~ [...] failing
#114846  maint-5.14: 33d4ef8 Call get-magic once for CV-to-GV assignment
#114848  maint-5.14: d5c6c69 Fix a Storable test to work in 5.8.9-

and the master tracking ticket for 5.14.3 is #114730.

As 5.14.3 is already quite overdue, I will not be pushing heavily for
additional fixes to be included in it, but I may entertain emails pointing
me at a ready-to-apply fix that isn't already in maint-5.14, or telling
me to wait (days not weeks) for backporting work. I intend to release the
first RC this month.

In the meantime, I will be peering at the smokers to make sure that there
aren't test failure regressions since v5.14.2, and generally getting to
grips with the release engineering side of things.
